Bali Break

Hello, friends. Back from vacation. I took surf lessons, see? Or falling into the water lessons, anyway.

For those who found me because of my reports on bird flu, my apologies for taking a step back. I’ve done just a little reporting about bird flu over the last couple of weeks, but I’m afraid the demand for updates from the international news marked has certainly slowed. The rate of human infections, however, is still steady.

Anyhow, many of you have posted questions, and I mean to get to them – please check comments from previous posts for follow ups.

And to the rest of you - mostly friends and family - it's been a busy time and going to Bali was restorative. Coming in to Kuta beach from the airport, our first view of the ocean brought a somewhat unexpected wave of relief. I have missed the salt.
